Rifles Only | SHOT 2017

Rifles Only had some neat products on display during the 2017 SHOT Show. Rifles Only, based out of Kingsville Texas, is a  training facility that offers long range rifle shooting and training. Aside from long range shooting, Rifles Only also offers classes for carbine, long range hunting, high angle shooting, high risk protection detail, field craft, pistol, instructor education, as well as helicopter assault training.

A new product that was released this year is The Skinny suppressor cover. The Skinny is similar to the Rifles Only, Heat Abatement Device, but lacks an inner core necessary for fully automatic fire. The Skinny, appears to be a low profile suppressor cover, that would be perfect on a bolt gun. It would also be perfect for mitigating mirage. As previously mentioned, The Skinny is not rated for fully automatic fire.

The Skinny suppressor cover. I love the low profile design of this product. Perfect for a bolt gun.


Standing up is the Rifles Only Heat Abatement Device. This suppressor cover is rated for fully automatic fire.

Rifles Only Heat Suppressor pouch. These pouches are perfect for securing a hot suppressor.

Rifles Only Shooters book. The book is of modular design.

The Rifles Only Rear Bag is my favorite for long range shooting.

        • Alex @Sea

          Just big boys toys. I remember when the hunting crowd thought anyone wanting an AR 15 was weird.

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            Fun is fine.
            People who compulsively “train” on crap like this to prepare for the damn apocalypse or whatever are psychotic.

    That rear bag is a complete RIP OFF of the Dog Gone rear bag, which is like 15 years old.

    What do you see in this company??
